Mother and Daughter. Thoughts On Swimming with Sisterlocks
After taking the pics of Soila, I thought I'd let hubby take a shot of us together. I think it's great to have her all locked up and she simply is great about retightenings. As I said in the post before we had just finished retightening which was quite a job because of the length of time we had left in between and because she swam nearly every day this summer.(we have a pool). Neither she nor I use a cap for swimming
a) because I can't find one that fits snugly over our locks and my big head and
b) because we tore her very first swim cap trying to put it on her head.
It didn't do much harm I don't think, except for extra swelling and puffiness on daughter's locks. Mine are totally locked. I was slightly worried about the effect on my hair color but really I haven't noticed any greeness. I always rinse my hair and Soila's after swimming but do not necessarily wash because we swam most every day in the summer often twice daily. I prefer a once-a-week wash because I have dry hair. What do other frequent swimmers do to protect their Sisterlocks? Any thoughts? I also deep conditioned once a week. Anyone know of good swim caps for lock wearers?
